      without segmentation faults

      Hello.

      What Linux x64 platforms support OpenCL without problems? I have already tried OpenSUSE 11.2 and Ubuntu 9.10 without any success - i get segfault on samples.

            Hill_Groove,

                       are you able to run CAL samples on OpenSUSE 11.2?

                       are you able to run OpenCL samples with CPU on OpenSUSE 11.2?

              Beta 4  works for me on debian/unstable. Yeah, "unstable", but hey it's a dev box not a server.  Running stock debian kernel linux-image-2.6.31-1-amd64 - after adding kernel boot option "nopat" so fglrx's PAT implementation is used rather than linux's - you want it saying something like this in dmesg:

              • [  145.067568] [fglrx] Kernel supports PAT but it has been disabled
              • [  145.067570] [fglrx] Using driver built-in PAT support instead
              • [  145.068761] [fglrx] Driver built-in PAT support is enabled successfully

                I have the ati-stream-sdk-v2.0-lnx64 running on the Gentoo Linux platform.

                I use kernel amd64 2.6.30-r5 and ati drivers 9.11.  I do get segfaults on the examples if I don't boot with the "nopat" boot option.

                My video card is a ATI4650 card.

                I know I should use version 9.11 of the ati drivers but I initially had problems getting a stable system with those drivers which I probably fixed by adding some different kernel configuration options. I will try the ati 9.12 drivers again.

                I have only run about 8 of the examples so far, but they all seem to work.
